Mediterranean bread rolls


The bread rolls in the picture above may look strange, but  guarantee you'll want to try them out. They were made based on one of my mother's old recipes, that I tweaked a little (as usual) and if you ignore my nonexistent talent for taking photos of food and my inability to make nice symmetrical bread rolls and continue reading below, you'll find that they are quick and easy to make. 

Ingredients: 
500 grams of flour
1 meat chorizo (or chouri├žo, in Portuguese)
1 packet of bread years (about 11 grams)
olive oil
oregano seeds
salt
water

optional: mozzarella cheese and / or chopped olives (not pictured below)

First, prepare the dough. Mix flour, yeast, a pinch of salt and some drops of olive oil with the water. I usually don't measure the amount of water, just add it on until I have an consistent bread dough, but the original recipe recommends 3 deciliters of lukewarm water, so start with that and add on slowly as needed.

Once the dough is ready, spread it until it's around 1 centimeter high: 



Finely chop the chorizo (if you're adding cheese and/or olives, mix them all together) and spread evenly over the dough.



Fold over the dough to create one big roll:



Then cut slices of the roll (about 2 fingers wide) and place in a greased oven tray: 



Add two or three drops of olive oil over each of the rolls, and sprinkle with oregano seeds. 
Bake for about 20 minutes @ 180┬║ C.
 


Serve warm or cold and enjoy!

  5. I think they actually look really pretty, and since I don't eat meat or dairy I'm thinking of a filling for them (olives and garlic?). I'm going to work on that - for now I'm pinning. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Olives and garlic sounds good, but I'm thinking red peppers and tomatoes should work well too...
